Cornwall College building for the future

Artist's impression of the new building at Cornwall College's Camborne campusCornwall College has embarked upon a further multimillion pound capital programme to build on its position as a key provider of university provision in Cornwall.

The College has announced a new £1.5 million art and design building at its Camborne campus, a £750,000 building at its Saltash campus, and a £1.9 million building adjacent to its Newquay campus, subject to planning approval.
The move comes as part of Cornwall College's plans to expand its presence in Cornwall and offer more university-level education opportunities across the whole of the South West area, as part of the Combined Universities in Cornwall project. The new buildings will provide improved learning resources, classrooms and lecture theatres for students.

Artist's impression of the new building at Cornwall College's Saltash campus"These three facilities are part of a major second phase of university-level developments across Cornwall, which have been enabled by the Combined Universities in Cornwall," said CUC Co-ordinator Gordon Kelly. "Using investment secured by CUC from Objective One and UK government, Cornwall College and other CUC partners are making a wider range of courses available to more people in more locations than ever before. This is clearly great news for future students, but it is also hugely significant for businesses in the region, which will need to recruit graduates with specialist knowledge and expertise if they are to flourish in today's knowledge-based economy."

Artist's impression of the new building at Cornwall College's Newquay campusDr Ken Woodcock, Vice Principal Planning and Higher Education at Cornwall College, said "These developments will allow even more students to study locally and keep their debt levels lower by studying in Cornwall. We want to provide the very best learning environment for our students; the new buildings will enable us to do this, and will provide room to expand the range of university courses we offer. These are exciting times for university education in Cornwall."
